Dronamics and Hellenic Post (ELTA) have signed a letter of intent to bring postal services by cargo drone to Greece.
Dronamics, which designs, develops and operates cargo drones, will be providing middle-mile deliveries to Hellenic Post (ELTA), the national postal service for Greece. Starting with a domestic service connecting the mainland with islands, the two companies are also exploring international cooperation to provide postal cargo drone deliveries from Athens to key European cities.
ELTA runs approximately 1,100 service points throughout the country. Its strategic goals include the adoption of innovative solutions and sustainable development, making them an early adopter of the cargo drone services offered by Dronamics, says the press release.
Greece is the launch market for Dronamics’ commercial operations, expected to begin early next year. The cargo drone airline is focusing on establishing a same day service connecting Athens, the capital city, with the industrial north area of the country, as well as the islands in the south. Dronamics’ General Sales & Service Agent for Greece is Golden Cargo, a premium logistics, handling and warehousing services provider.
According to the press release, Dronamics can offer faster, cheaper and lower in CO2 emissions freight compared to traditional services, making it suited to time-sensitive deliveries such as post and packages. Its remotely-piloted aircraft, the Black Swan, requires 400 meters only to land and take off, a viable solution for reaching remote and underserved areas, where traditional airport infrastructure is missing or underdeveloped. There are over 300 inhabited islands in Greece whose communities can benefit from a faster, cheaper and green air cargo solution.
Last month, Dronamics announced an agreement with the Emirates Post Group.
